Instagram of the Day: Life of a Kabuki Actor

Actor Takatoshi Horikoshi reveals backstage of the traditional Japanese art.

37-year-old Takatoshi Horikoshi created an Instagram account about being a Kabuki actor. While applying make-up or putting on a costume of a samurai, princess, demon or geisha, Horikoshi takes a selfie or shoots a video to showcase Japanese culture. His blog has 65,000 followers from all over the world.

“I want people to notice the colors. The basic Kabuki makeup consists of white, red and black, which are very vivid and beautiful, even when seen from afar. I want people to know that these are a part of the Japanese make-up culture,” says the actor.
